We Stayed on Beacon St in Boston .
The rooms were nice .
Loved that we felt like we had our own apartment .
The Area is very nice .
The Park is just up the street on the corner .
Lovely clean neighborhood . Our Daughter lives in Back Bay so this was a perfect location . Charles street with wonderful restaurants and shops not far away.
We certainly felt safe walking in the area .
The river is across the street .
The Washer and Dryer were nice to have since one of us runs and it's nice to be able to deal with the workout clothes .
The Elevator is very hard to find .
It is on the first floor at the end of the Hall on the right . Just a small door that looks like a fire door. We wouldn't have found it if we hadn't read others reviews and knew to look for it .
Cleanliness was acceptable but not perfect ,
We were a bit disappointed to find our room still being cleaned at 3:15 and we had to wait another twenty minutes .
The Kitchen is nicely stocked with everything anyone would need to cook and serve a meal .
The bed was not the most comfortable but acceptable .
Wifi was easy to access but a bit iffy at times .
All and all a very nice place to stay and we will/would stay here again .
Loved having our own apartment and the freedom to come and go as we wanted .
The Keypad entrance is great no keys to remember .
Again we loved our stay and would stay here again happily .
Big Thank you to our hosts
Who you never have to see, which we also liked .
We arrived just before the check in time at 2.50pm. The apartment had not been cleaned from the previous occupants. At 3.30pm the cleaner finally arrived and they cleaned while we sat in the living area. The property manager came and realised what had happened and was extremely apologetic for the inconvenience.
The apartment itself is situated in the perfect location right next to boston common. Air conditioning in both the living room and the bedroom which was great considering how hot and humid it was while we were in Boston. The wifi signal was weak and we had to keep logging in which was a little annoying, but glad we had it available. The building itself is old and you can hear all the footsteps above you and in the hall very loudly. Bed was ok. Very bouncy mattress. Shower takes a LONG time to heat up. The sliding door into the bedroom does not close, it has come off it's rails or something and gets stuck.
Overall, nice accommodation in a great spot with a few minor details which detracted from the overall experience.
A comfortable apartment in a beautiful Brownstone building in the Back Bay Area. The host was quick to respond to queries and were able to offer this apartment as an alternative when our first choice was already booked. I would definitely stay here again as it was such a good location to explore Boston.
Our stay in Boston Back Bay was lovely. The area is beautiful and also central. The apartment was spacious, modern, clean and highly equipped. Would highly recommend.
Kitty was very helpful with my reservation. There was no check-in, just an email with the lobby door and room code (very convenient). The apartment was clean, comfortable and close to the Freedom Trail, Newbury Street (shopping and restaurants). Thankfully one of the guests provide elevator instructions, otherwise 6 flights of stairs to climb.
For a solo traveller or couple the size of the offering was adequate. Location is great as its close to Charles St and not too far a walk to Newbury and Boyston.
I did not see an elevator for this property. Not an issue for me, but something to consider as this unit is on the fifth floor. Best to confirm with the landlord if one is there if you need it. Certainly worth the price paid. It was generally clean. Clean fresh linens and towels were provided. Could've used a bit more attention to vacuuming. All in all good value. Thank you.
Nice apartment in a really nice area of Boston. Cheers bar and Boston Common just opposite. Check in was very smooth, information was provided in a timely fashion and the entry codes worked fine. Lift not immediately obvious and pretty old but a God send if you are on the upper floors with luggage.
